VA2986 Two stampless covers from Williamsburg, Va. -- Handstamp PAID 5 Type B with the small double circle Williamsburg, Va CDS 13 JUL 1861. Orange paper cover with a very faded address but can be seen as addressed to Museville, Pittsylvania County, Va. Handstamp PAID 10 Type C with the small double circle Williamsburg, Va CDS 9 OCT 1861. Addressed trans-Mississippi to Miss Sallie Scogin, Keachie, DeSoto Pa(rish), Louisiana. The Williamsburg stampless PAID 10 is listed in the new CSA catalog as an "unsupported listing." Not sure why as there are other examples of the Williamsburg PAID 10 in private collections. The Battle of Williamsburg took place 5/5/1862 (first battle of the Peninsula Campaign) after which the Union army occupied the city when the Confederate army withdrew toward Richmond. Williamsburg was Confederate for a relatively short period of time. The PAID 5 cover is complete and Very Fine except for the faded address. The PAID 10 cover has back flap opening tears and a minor edge stain at the left but otherwise has a very clean appearance. $200.00
